You expect the guy to close down his site?
nope, i dont expect anything.... just a bit of fun along the way..
and to those people who say ng users stick their noses up toms ass.. well heres my view..
i wouldnt say that i brown nose tom fulp, infact, i dont really like the way he runs newgrounds and maybe he has the monopoly for too long and is beginning to think he is unbeatable.. i seriously think newgrounds needs some new features that will keep people coming back..
but, i do respect tom and i respect newgrounds (dont take that as me respecting users, i think 99.99% of them are complete morons) but he has put alot of effort into this website, and like its been said, has created a website that is able to support himself and his staff thats completely free!.. and thats pretty fucking impressive.. so hats off to the newgrounds crew..
as to the copy cat sites.. if a site came along that was better than newgrounds (and i dont mean a better website, also a better fan base) then i wouldnt think twice about moving over to there.. but there arnt any that are better.. just copies, made by kids who know a little php.. they are poorly made websites run on budget servers and i bet just some random website mostly, their history consists of about 2 weeks.. good websites evolve, and develop around what people want.. and thats what they have stolen, anyone can rewrite a code, but they have taken all the research and brainstorming that the ng crew have done and used to make their own "just add water" flash portal.. its not right, these kids wont make a profit and they wont be successfull, but they will be taking valuable users away from newgrounds.. and that just sucks, for all of us..
